Plus Short Discussion on Intelligent Design Today & Special Guest by Skype

For the nosy person who doesn't have time to read it all, but wants to know it all —

Bring whatever you've been reading, and come to discuss that and what everyone else is reading. Subjects can include just about anything: fiction or non-fiction; history, science, humor, psychology, religion, philosophy; books or blogs or articles, etc. Come to talk or come to listen. No pressure, just friendly fun.

RSVP now. (It helps us know how to set up.)

The short Intelligent Design discussion will include a report by me and others who attended a recent talk by an ID author.  What are ID advocates claiming these days, and how would you answer them?  What's their tactic to now prevent the Next Generation Science Standards from being approved by the Kansas State Board of Education?

We 'll give anyone who wants 3-5 minutes to explain what they've been reading, and another 3-5 minutes for everyone to ask questions and discuss. We always learn a ton. Come make new friends and learn something new about what they’ve been reading.


"A mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge." - George R.R. Martin


Come at 6:45 to grab a salad bar or café supper downstairs or just chat before getting started.


Afterwards: Meet at the nearby

Blue Moose for more conversation.


See ya Friday,

Fred Heeren

    I attended as a virtual guest via Skype! It was so great seeing my friends again, and some new faces, too.

    Wow, this is political which interests me. Lawn is mowed, over 1/2 of my other to do's is done. Shae is in the shower and if she wants to come along, we'll be there.

    I just think book-reading is sexy, that's all.

      Fred, swim suit wouldn't make sense paired with those thigh-high stockings she's wearing. But who cares? I want to know who the shirtless guy is!

      Hence the point made about the importance of reading relative to material concerns.

    I just graduated and now have time to read for pleasure! I'll be in STL for part of the week so if I make it back in time I look forward to joining.
